Pros

Great people to work with. Offers an opportunity to gain some good experience in the selling of digital products.

Cons

Fiscally unstable. Seems we are always selling to the needs of the paper and not the client...way too many special sales drives.

Advice to Management

Dont shackle your sales team with endless reports. Allowing us the time needed to get out in the field and sell will increase revenue.

    Pros

    A good starting point for journalism and entry into the business Knowledgeable editors Decent work-life balance Variety of different stories to work on

    Cons

    Low pay No raises Even on weeks of loaded coverage, approved overtime requires moving of Heaven and Earth The company is $1.2 billion in debt (which accounts for those first three cons) Way behind the 21st-century technology curve in news reporting

    Advice to Management

    Approve raises for the lifeblood of your company, the hard-working reporters, photographers and editors who bust their asses every day and week to put out the publications that keep the business going. Instead of for the exalted senior management getting bonuses in the six figures on the backs of the little people's efforts.


  2. Fun and creative in a great atmosphere.
